Midnight Commander TAB-BACKSPACE shifting of arrows-highlighted block

- its for UTF-8 locale with my patch for block-shifting.
8 Kb PKG is on this public file hosting:, or Google PKG.

it affects only arrows-touched lines, F3 highlighting should be as it goes.
when «TAB», «B-E», «Save» or «Save_As» are pressed highlight is still on,
any other key press should unmark highlighted area.

«B-E» moves them to the left
deleting at the begining of highlighted lines all (' ' or '\t').

by default «TAB/B-E» shifting is
'edit/edit.c: option_arrows_highlight_lines_tab_spacing = 4' spaces
or optional: = 1; = 2; = 3; etc.

Common «TAB» ('\t') = option_tab_spacing = 8;.

Would be better
option_arrows_highlight_lines_tab_spacing = option_tab_spacing; ?

my name is Vit <>
